A winter that hasn't pulled any punches has started to sock the region again Monday, with as much as 8 inches of snow expected followed by another round or two of single-digit temperatures. As of 5:30 a.m. about an inch has fallen in Reisterstown and the city, according to the National Weather Service. The heaviest snows in the region were expected south of Baltimore as a storm stretching from Colorado to Massachusetts plows across the country. The National Weather Service forecast as much as 10 inches of snow in Southern Maryland, 4 to 8 inches across Central Maryland and lesser amounts toward the Mason-Dixon Line falling Monday, on top of one-tenth inch of ice. The forecast had officials renewing calls for motorists to delay travel and for residents to be prepared for power outages.

When some kids hear the hallowed words "snow day" in advance of Monday's storm, they'll grab their coats and sleds and head outdoors. But Maryvale Preparatory School senior Elizabeth Piet, like a growing number of students across the Baltimore region, will power up her iPad to see what assignments her teachers have waiting. Both private and public schools are turning traditional snow days into cyber days that sometimes require students to use the Internet and email to stay connected to their teachers, allowing educators to stick more closely to lesson plans during a winter that's included more severe weather than usual.

The National Weather Service is forecasting up to 8-10 inches of snow on top of a layer of ice across Central Maryland by Monday night, with sleet and freezing rain expected Sunday night, turning to heavy snow into Monday. Forecasters remain uncertain how quickly precipitation might switch from sleet and freezing rain to snow, which could affect where the heaviest snowfall accumulations occur. That could also affect how much ice might accumulate before any snow falls. Precipitation was expected to start as rain Sunday evening.

The brightly colored kayaks strapped to roof racks contrasted with the snow as a small party gathered a couple of weeks ago at the Gunpowder Falls State Park parking lot on Jones Road. Kayakers clad in rubber dry suits, liners and winter coats clambered onto the slush to get ready for the day's boating trip. They would paddle the 3.5 miles of the Gunpowder River, a stretch in northeast Baltimore County that includes Class II and III rapids. But the weather made it difficult just getting cars out of the rendezvous lot to run a shuttle to the put-in spot.

The recent article highlighting issues with snow removal struck a chord with me ( "Plenty of snow this winter brings plenty of fines, too," Feb. 26). I live in a neighborhood where everything I need is within a seven block walk of my house. This includes work, shopping and socialization. I've spent a frustrating winter slipping and sliding on icy sidewalks left for me by neighbors and businesses alike. I fully side with the time limit for removing snow. If a person waits too long, the snow becomes trampled and turns to ice. I was very aggressive about reporting scofflaws this winter.

As a former facilities manager at the Church of the Redeemer on North Charles Street, I am appalled at the city of Baltimore issuing fines for sidewalk clearing during recent snows at this church ( "Plenty of snow this winter brings plenty of fines, too," Feb. 26). In most city neighborhoods there is a grass divider between the street and the sidewalk. This is not true along North Charles Street where sidewalks border the street. Compressed snow from plowing becomes frozen and very difficult, if not impossible, to remove during freezing temperatures.
